In Scottish folklore the Urisk was described as having the upper half of a man and the lower half of a goat. The Urisk was said to haunt pools of water and waterfalls near the Scottish Highlands. Often chronicled as being very lonely, the Urisk would seek out human companionship; however the unusual nature of his physical appearance often frightened away anyone he would try to interact with.

Like many folk legends at the time the Urisk was known to help farmers tend to their fields, they where also known to frighten humans by following them through the dark and lonely places of the world.

A very small hand full of researchers have suggested that stories of the Urisk may have come from encounters with an undiscovered species of horned primate. Though it is well known that there are no primates indigenous to the Scotland, investigators suggest that these primates may have stowed away on any number of vessels which traveled between the Middle East, Europe and Africa. This theory if often quickly dismissed by the vast majority of researchers as pure fantasy, and consider the Urisk to be nothing more than another example of ancient folklore and mythology used to describe the unknown.
